How to Cook Beef Arm Roast (Slow Cooker)
Warm up cast iron skillet on medium heat for 5 minutes.
Add butter to skillet and allow to melt. While butter is melting, dry beef arm roast with paper towel.
Once butter is melted, salt roast and place in skillet to sear. After a few minutes, turn roast over to sear other side. Searing adds a depth of flavor that takes this from good to a great recipe.
When all sides of the roast have a nice golden crust, place roast in bottom of the slow cooker.
Saute the onion in the cast iron skillet until softened, about 3 minutes, trying to scrape up all the brown bits from the roast in there.
Add the garlic and saute another 1-2 minutes.
Dump sautéed onion and garlic on top of the roast.
Place lid on slow cooker and cook on low for 8-10 hours or until fork tender. If using high setting, cook for 4-5 hours. However, for best results, cook on low setting.
Shred beef with fork.
Tips for Beef Arm Roast – Slow Cooker
- After slow cooking this delicious roast, you are left with some beef stock in the bottom of the slow cooker that is perfect for turning into a gravy or just drizzling right on top of your food! The best way to make gravy is by adding a little flour and whisking together.
- Add yukon or red potatoes and baby carrots right on top of roast and cook alongside for an easy dinner.
- Don’t have time? This recipe works by just throwing a frozen roast straight into the Crockpot as well, but there will not be as much flavor.
- The beef arm roast can also be substituted with beef chuck roast or round roast.
Serve this tender roast alongside creamy mashed potatoes and garlic green beans and you’ll be knocking the socks off of anyone who enjoys this slow cooker recipe. Store leftover pot roast in airtight container in fridge.
